Together with your Madrileño host, get under the skin of Madrid on this fascinating tour that takes you through a mosaic of neighborhoods, experiencing daily life from a local’s perspective, discovering and tasting the essence of Madrid and Spain as you go.
You may visit the Mercado de San Miguel under the roof of Madrid’s oldest market offering stunning delicatessen products. Or you may prefer a more traditional neighborhood market as the purpose of this tour is to treat you to fabulous foodie experiences you are unlikely to find on your own, and to introduce you to some wonderful characters along the way in one or more of Madrid’s idiosyncratic neighborhoods.
Your host will aim to include as many local flavors as possible… including Iberian ham, artisanal cheeses, pastry shops, delis, a specialized chocolate store -Spain was the first country to import chocolate from the New World and kept the discovery of the cocoa tree a secret from the rest of Europe for almost a century.
If you’d like to end the morning with a glass of wine, you may be tempted to indulge at Madrid’s leading wine store where you can choose a glass from an impressive variety of reds and whites from wine regions all over Spain. The store boasts a superb restaurant too, and to accompany your food, you can order any of the huge selection of wines at retail price.
Overall, an entertaining and highly gratifying way to explore Madrid, its local neighborhoods, its foodie culture and, of course, enjoying the Madrileño hospitality along the way. Highly recommended!
